|Rolled out of the Melton Hill campsite and headed into Lenoir City to get some fuel and hit WalMart in the on-going search for a fog light, again without success.
We got on I-75/40 through Knoxville at about 11:00 and shortly turned north on I-75, through Lexington KY, with today’s final destination being...Cincinnati OH; well actually the campground is called Winton Woods and it’s less than 30 minutes north of downtown Cincinnati. It is a county park and it is really nice – not cheap like last night – but really nice. Concrete pads to park the bus, large sites, not crowded, Wi-Fi that works really well and full hook ups.
Today’s trip north was uneventful with cloudy weather most of the way and some sprinkles but not bad at all. Temp at the park was 77° when we got here and hasn’t cooled off too much at press time – maybe down to 70°. We got all set up and the dog walked by 4:00, then it was time to grill some T-bones, eat, rinse off some dishes and head back into Cincy to The Great American Ball Park to watch the Reds play the Houston Astros.
We were standing in line deciding which tickets to buy and a guy walked up and said that he was going to be sitting with his son’s Little League team and he didn’t need his season tix and asked if we wanted to buy them. Each ticket’s face value was $34 each, but we bought both for $30 (LK-are you proud of us?). And they were really good seats – above the 1st base dugout, 30 rows up from the field. Sweet deal all the way around. Game was OK, some good defensive plays by the Reds, but JD Martinez did homer for Houston – KB played with him at Pembroke Lakes so that was kind of neat.
Tomorrow we have no specific plan; we might play tourist in Cincy or see what else there is to do locally. From what we have seen of Cincy, we have not been all that impressed. The view of the City as you come down the hill across the river from the south is neat, but once you get closer you see that the whole area is kind of icky. Is that a vivid enough description for ya?
